[opencms-dev] Audio File Upload??

I think that it's better to keep large resources outside of opencms. 
Otherwise you will blow up your database massively, especially if you 
plan to have many files.

The best way that I know is to keep media files outside of opencms and 
then create link objects in opencms to point to these external 
resources. The problem with this is that users need to upload the files 
elsewhere and then have to maintain the links manually which is 
cumbersome and error-prone. Yet sadly, this is the only way I know 
without developing custom extensions for opencms.
